Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue explores various aspects of the pathogenesis of oral diseases, emphasizing therapeutic interventions rooted in pathogenicity and providing examples that showcase the ways in which the pathogenesis of specific oral conditions reflects the interconnected nature of oral and general health. The central goal aligns with the World Health Organization's objective for promoting oral health, as outlined in the 2021 Resolution. Recent advancements in understanding and treating oral pathologies, ranging from common issues such as dry mouth (xerostomia) and taste disorders (dysgeusia) to severe conditions such as oral cancer and precancerous lesions, constitute the core focus. The Special Issue examines not only the therapeutic aspects, but also the geographical, virological and environmental dimensions of pathogenesis. This broader perspective incorporates recommendations regarding environmental, genetic and social factors, aiming to provide a more comprehensive and understandable view of the subject. Additionally, dental treatments can offer valuable insights into general pathology, showcasing the interdisciplinary nature of oral healthcare. The Special Issue invites original research articles, reviews and case reports that contribute valuable insights to the broader knowledge base in these fields.
